The recently remodernised Residence Baia di Sorgeto, is situated amongst the lush green vineyards of Ischia. It is conveniently located 1.5km from Sant'Angelo and just a small walk away from winding steps, which lead, down to the Bay of Sorgeto. The bay is rich in hot thermal springs in the Med Sea so one can bathe in the sea even in Winter!! The studio contains a self-sufficient cooking/ kitchen area with cabinets, ample supply of kitchen utensils: including coffee filter, scissors and fridge, plus anything else you could possibly need to use during your stay. The studio also contains orthopedic bed and mattress, an ensuite bathroom complete with shower. All room has either a private balcony or patio with small garden and stunning views of the Island. The island of Ischia as seen in the new Talented Mr Ripley and Avanti- better in life!!New! We can also offer you now a covered thermal-pool with hydromassage, usable all year long.
Hot Tub in the Sea!: In some places of the Sorgeto Bay, the sea is so hot that it would be possible to boil eggs (no exaggeration!). One of the bays is just a 10 minute walk from your accommodation, where you can have a dip in the sea, which feels like a hot tub! And there’s more, if a tufacean stone is scratched, a mud can be obtained, which can be used for making a beauty mask for the face. Local supermarket purchases may be delivered to the apartment free of charge. There is an Internet point and fax service at 800m. Car, scooter and boat hire all available locally also. Diving courses are available in nearby Sant'Angelo and Forio. Personalised boat tour of the island. Characteristic restaurant nearby apartment.
Thermal Spa-Pool Gardens: The Island of Ischia is scattered with natural- thermal spring pool gardens. These gardens have a mix of different types of pools, filled with the natural spring water from the Volcanos on the Island. The pools range from cold to hot tub temperature and have no chlorine. There are large family pools to small 2 person romantic pools with the cosiest grottos and the most amazing views. The caves in the walls of the volcano’s are used as natural saunas and there are massage and beauty treatments available also. We can arrange discounts on entrance costs to the thermal gardens.
Island of Capri: Capri is a 40 Minute hydrofoil ride away from Ischia. Capri is one of the most stunning Island and is full of adventurous things to do and see. These include the cave grottos, like the grotto Azzuri (blue cave), which you can only get into via row boat and by laying flat on your back to go inside and when there you will experience the most amazing clear blue in the water that it looks as if there are lighting special effects inside. Also, the famous fangoli rocks and the funicolre, which is like a monorail going to the top of the island to where your disembark to an open piazza with narrow little roads full of designer clothes shops and small classy bars/ cafes. Capri is an absolute must to visit.
*Just a quick note to say how much Jenni & I enjoyed staying with you last week. Thank you for all your warm hospitality & help, we had a beautiful holiday and already miss the sunshine, the food & of course your swimming pool! We also had a great night in Napoli on the way back - lots of fun wandering down via Toledo & through Chiaia. Hope we can make it back to see you again sometime - We still need that face mask! Very best wishes Dave *We really enjoyed our stay with you on Ischia, very relaxing! I will certainly send some more people to you if I can *We had a very good time in Ischia and hope to return in the future. Thanks for all your help *Sabrina Pellegrinelli from Holiday-rentals- I have been to stay with Peppino in this accommodation and have the most amazing time. Peppino and family were more that helpful and happy to do so. I came back completely refreshed and rearing to go, so I can wholeheartedly recommend this accommodation.
What a fantastic location and host. We had a really relaxed holiday – swimming in the thermal pools at the hotel, and going to the bay of Sorgeto every day (by foot), to rest in the sea water heated by the volcano.
Peppino - is the man! Great host, will do anything for you. He speaks English well.
We had no problems at all with the room - it has what you need to self-cater.
The local town Panza, whilst it is a walk up the hill, has everything you need food wise. From here the buses are available to the rest of the island.
There's a place a few yards from the hotel where a lady makes homemade lemoncillo and red wine, which is very drinkable. There also restaurants which you can walk to , if you don’t fancy cooking in the apartment.
Thanks Peppino, for a lovely relaxing holiday - we will come back without a doubt.
Me and my partner had 18 lovely days at Baia di Sorgeto in Sorgeto, where we were met by the lovely owner Peppino and his family. The apartments are set in a beautiful rural Italian location, which has two thermal pools set amongst a lovely garden, which includes Peppino herb garden, in which he will encourage you to use. From the outdoor thermal pool ( A lovely green in colour) is the view of Sant’Angelo, this amazing place can either be reached by your own transport, a nice walk through vineyards and cobbled streets or by boat taxi from the Bay of Sorgeto (5€ each). The accommodation is lovely and comfortable and if you needed anything Peppino and his family were always there to help, whether you wanted somewhere to eat or maybe visit other parts of this amazing island, nothing was ever to much. We both enjoyed our conversations with Peppino who is always helpful and friendly.
The outdoor pool is amazing with no chlorine, so the water is a natural green in colour. Peppino adds fresh thermal water a few times each day from the thermal spring deep inside the ground, which keeps the pool lovely and warm. The separate indoor pool/spar is lovely and warm as well.
The village of Panza is up the hill where you will find some good restaurants and local produce ( meat, fish, bakery and vegetable) there is also a good bus service that goes around the island from here.
We found that getting around the island was made easier by riding a scooter for a week which Peppino gladly arranged for us. The local buses are plentiful but can get really busy, also there are plenty of taxis which again, Peppino will arrange for you. We had a few boat trips to the Amalfi coast ( Sorrento, Positano and Amalfi ) where we caught the boat from the port of Forio, these place are beautiful to visit.
The hot springs in the Bay of Sorgeto are 10 minutes walk away, down hill and steps, where it you can find a couple of lovely restaurants, Da Gisella is a good restaurant nearby with a big balcony overlooking the Bay of Sorgeto. If you want a truly Italian holiday, this is the place to go.
A wonderful place to stop, with wonderful hosts, and we would highly recommend.
Simon & Janet.
My son and I spent a week at Baia di Sorgeto and we were very pleased. It was everything it purported to be on HomeAway -- there are indeed two thermal pools and the accommodations are lovely and very comfortable. Not only that, but the location is great since it's only five minutes from the Bay of Sorgeto where hot water flows right into the ocean. We especially enjoyed our conversations with Peppino who is the consummate host, always helpful and friendly.
My wife and I stayed at Baia di Sorgetto in late June - I can really recommend it.
The description is absolutely spot on; a set of apartments in a genuine rural Italian setting with spa facilities (including an indoor thermal pool which was very good) and an outdoor pool, set among vineyards and with a thermal (hot) water beach down the road... The village of Panza is up the hill and is a lively community with some good restaurants and local characters, there is also a good bus service round the island.
In common with other respondents, we found the best part of our visit were the hosts: Peppino, Rosa & Margo (the dog). Warm people who immediately put us at our ease with a extremely helpful nature and such gentle natures that had a relaxing effect on us. Mid-week Peppino and Rosa kindly threw a pizza party where we all had a go at making pizza from dough; not quite as easy at it looks....
On our final day, we spoke about how we had had such a relaxing time and we we're introduced to a lovely Italian expression, more like a feeling actually: "La Dolce Far Niente." The translation is: the feeling of sheer indulgent relaxation and blissful laziness, being deliciously idle. In other words our experience in Baia di Sorgetto.
A wonderful place. I planned to stay for a month in April but didn’t leave until June! I went for the hot springs and was fortunate to choose this place as my base. Peppino and Rosa Thea are wonderful hosts – genuinely nice and always on hand with recommendations for things to do and stories about the island & its many famous visitors over the years. Margot the dog is a character as well.
The north of the island has more going on but I found this area more authentic, friendlier and better value.
The hot springs in the Bay of Sorgeto are 10 minutes walk away (you should try and turn up around midtide for optimum water temperature as the thermal water comes out hot and the sea cools it down so you want to time it a bit strategically). Sant’Angelo is a nice walk away through vineyards and cobbled streets. A tip if you want to catch the bus is to take the shortcut halfway to Sant’Angelo and get the bus from the stop in Succhivo – a bit less uphill and more chance of getting a seat before the crowds get on in Panza (tip: you can’t buy bus tickets everywhere so get a few in advance).
The hotel pool is amazing. No chlorine so the water is an amazing natural green colour. Peppino adds fresh thermal water a few times each day so go swimming when the hot water ‘tap’ is on! Some visitors, especially British ones who are used to chlorinated water, found the colour a bit disconcerting but it is not due to algae. It is the natural colour of the water as it comes out of the thermal spring
da Gisella is a good restaurant nearby with a big balcony overlooking the Bay of Sorgeto. Most dishes seemed designed to feed 2 so order carefully. You can walk there from around the back of the hotel through vineyards which is particularly nice. And a couple of places opposite the residence sell wine and limoncello from grapes and lemons grown right there – convenient, cheap and so local!
Highly recommended. I can’t wait to go back.
Had a wonderful week at Residence Baia De Sorgeto. I travelled to the island of ischia with my boyfriend in October 2013 and stayed at Peppino's residence. The residence is located in Panza which is a very quiet and safe area. The owner Peppino's is a wonderful man and is very helpful with anything you need or want to know. He lives on the residence with his wife and they really do make you feel at home. He even picked us up from our bus stop when we arrived. Although it seemed that we were the youngest couple staying in the area (we are 24 years old), we got exactly what we wanted - a beautiful and relaxing holiday.
The residence has an indoor hot thermal pool that we used every evening and it made our skin feel amazing by the end of the week - it's a hidden gem.
There is also an outdoor thermal pool with lots of beach chairs to sit around and enjoy the sun. Our room had a kitchenette with everything you would need, including a mini fridge and freezer. We stayed here in the middle of October (which is the off-season time) and the weather was perfect. Hot (24 degrees Celsius) and sunny almost everyday.
Although you could have a great week just relaxing at the residence - The island has so many amazing places to explore and such breathtaking views. We would highly recommend you visit one of the thermal water parks on the island. It was our best day of the trip and the pools and park were beautiful. Also, just a short walk from the Residence is a restaurant by the name of di Giselle. You must go here - they give you a true Italian cooked dinner for a very cheap price. It feels very homely and local and has a great view. We shared bruschetta, wine, pasta and desert for €16. And it was the best tasting dinner we have had in Italy so far.
If you want a relaxing getaway on a beautiful island with great feeling skin and warm sun- book a week at this residence!
Ischia is an island in the gulf of Naples in front of Capri. It can be reached by ferry (1 hour at a leisurely pace with stunning views) and hydrofoil (40mins high speed ride) from Naples: Beverello or Mergellina or Pozzuoli.
The Residence's private thermal pool is rich in minerals (13 m x 8 m and 32°C) taken directly from the springs below (80°C and 105 m deep), which possess therapeutic properties, toning muscles and stimulating the skin. The peace, the aromatic smells of the surrounding vegetation, the closeness to the sea and the unforgettable view of Sant'Angelo and Capri (in sight from the large pool terrace of 350 mq), makes the Residence an ideal place for total relaxation. We have our own multi lingual website with plenty more information, please ask for details.http://www.residencebaiadisorgeto.it/
Other Activities: excursions to Pompei, Vesuvio, Sorrento, Amalfi, Positano, Capri, Naples, Monte Epomeo.
